Mike Watt of Minutemen/fIREHOSE "fame" is unbelievable. The Minutemen came out of the LA hardcore scene in the late 70's, but were totally different from anything else in that scene. Their album "Double Nickels on the Dime" is a classic in 80's indie/punk circles. Watt recently played bass for the Stooges reunion. There are some Minutemen, fIREHOSE, and Watt shows here at the LMA. Watt can be a lot like Phil--playing lead lines or the melody, instead of locking in with the drums. He can also slap like a mutha. Check him out...
